Weekly import update: Metal Slug 5, Sega AGES Fighting Viers, Spectral Force Chronicle (PS2™), Devilish, Guru Guru Nagetto (NDS™), soundtracks, toys & more


More than 20 new titles have been released during the last April week in Japan. Among the flood of dating simulation and adventure games, a couple of titles have distinguished themselves from the mass.

Sony™ platform highlights from this week include SNK Playmore's 2D action port Metal Slug 5, Sega's Fighting Vipers remake, Idea Factory's Spectral Force Chronicle (regular verion and Limited Edition) for PlayStation2™ as well as Now Production's text-based horror adventure Higanjima.

Well selling releases on Nintendo's platforms include Starfish's 1991 Game Gear monster pinball remake Devilish, Success' platformer Guru Guru Nagetto (both for Nintendo DS™), One Piece Dragon Dream and Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters Beginner's Pack 2005 (for GBA™) and Chunsoft's online RPG Homeland. The latter will be in stock during the next few days due to restricted distribution of this title.

Apart from the video game releases, a couple of soundtrack, anime and toy related items have marked this week. TOHO's huge Godzilla Final Box, Aniplex's theatrical feature Naruto Daikatsugeki! Yukihime Ninpocho Dattebayo!! anime release (as RC2 DVD Video and PSP™ UMD), official Nintendogs plush dolls along with a couple of very interesting soundtracks are not to be forgotten.
